Where we are living now in Ohio, we are within thirty minutes of four good size lakes. In my last three blogs I have spotlighted Cowan Lake: what I would call my “home lake” if you will. Today’s blog covers photographs taken at Rocky Fork Lake. This lake is much larger than Cowan, about an hour farther south, but all in all very similar in view and wild life.
If you haven’t guessed, today’s blog focuses on the Great Blue Heron. I was fortunate enough to capture a few good shots of the “grand-daddy” of herons in flight. The large water lilies, with their deep vibrant greens, make a wonderful background. Typically speaking, with the busyness of the greens and the split background, cameras can have a difficult time staying focused on the intended target. But my Nikon D7200 and the the Nikkor 200-500mm lens did a great job catching the Great Blue cruising very quickly by me from left to right.
The Great Blues are no doubt a beautiful bird, but they also have a tendency to look as if they just woke up. Their feathers can appear a little discombobulated at times, but this one seems to have all the numbers in the right places, and is actually pulling off a quite majestic appearance. Well deserved to say the least.
